The Wonderful World of Wistia

Vetted Review

  • Wistia is a perfect solution for hosting websites on your website or blog, but not so much if you want your videos to "go viral." Wistia itself is not a replacement or competitor to YouTube; hosting your videos on Wistia does not get you access to new audiences. So, if you want to maximize your reach with your videos, Wistia may not be the best solution. However, if you want a solution to integrate video into your website, Wistia is perfect.
  • I also do not know that I would recommend Wistia to a small business or organization with only one or a handful of videos. I think it is more valuable if you have a good handful or many videos to embed.

Wistia is well suited for anyone wanting to create a digital product and embed the videos into their website or product platform. It's also great for bloggers and folks starting out producing videos online.
It's not well suited for those who want to share their videos on social media, as it's more of a tool for business, not an advertising platform.

Wistia is a great engagement tool for lead generation from videos, the HubSpot integration where applicable, and having the ability to embed videos with corporate branding across web assets. It's a strong video platform and has great customer service as well to support both companies directly and agencies working with organizations.

If you have a primarily online business that needs a lot of video content, Wistia is perfect for your business. Even if you work in sales, their "Soapbox" aspect is absolutely fantastic, and adds that personal touch to your clients. With videos, the stats you have access to are easy to find and extremely helpful.

If you regularly need to load videos quickly, Wistia is so easy to use. For training videos and Marketing videos, Wistia is excellent. Videos load fast, share easily, and still allow you to control them in a more strict environment through password gating. One area to note is that if you are hosting several hundred plus videos, it could become cost-prohibitive.

Wistia is well-suited for embedding marketing videos and capturing leads. We also use it to measure engagement with our educational videos. I think it may be less well-suited for storing a massive library of non-marketing content, mainly because there are more cost-effective alternatives for that use-case.

The video creation site Animoto said, "56% of consumers believe if a company has a website, it should have video content." Wistia is the most sure-fire way to make sure that the user experience around your videos is the best it can possibly be. Not only is Wistia a great product, the staff are some of the brightest people when it comes to how to leverage video content in your marketing plans via their binge-worthy content. Their 1k, 10k, 100k series looked at how much you should spend on the videos you make, and they recently published a study about Marketing Affinity! I highly recommend Wistia, if you're serious about video content marketing!

Wistia is well suited if your company hosts videos in a variety of places currently and need one master place to host the content so that it can be accessed internally and also embedded on the web and shared externally. Wistia is less appropriate as a place to house training content as there is no tracking per external user and the holistic view of all the videos is only available to internal users.

Wistia works well for marketing teams, especially demand generation teams, who are looking to measure, improve and grow their audience. I think it's almost a must for B2B companies, especially if they're using Vimeo or YouTube. I also really like the clean styling, comparable to Vimeo, maybe slightly better. I think the analytics are unparalleled with other platforms.

Wistia is perfectly suited for almost all of your email marketing needs -- specifically when you are sending a custom video to one recipient so you can make it unique to them. Also, when you need the recipient to understand the clear call to action at the end, Wistia has some great options for that. It isn't as appropriate if you're looking to make high-quality videos with better editing needs.

Standalone or Integrated Video Hosting - Wistia is top of the MarTech Stack

Wistia is a great video hosting technology and it is well suited to marketing campaigns. Since the videos are served out of your account and are not monetized (like YouTube) you do not need to worry about your content being interrupted by a video ad. (Not very good if you are trying to deliver a message of your own. Also, commenting is easily disabled, which is important for some regulated industries, such as healthcare.

Providing gated video content for webinars can be done really well with a platform like Wistia. Especially when you do not wish to provide open access to your videos through YouTube, and would like to customize the experience, Wistia can be an extremely powerful platform. Also if you are trying to collect leads from these videos.

Wistia is paid video service that's good for organizations that have restricted internet access and can't use free to use services such as YouTube. Varieties of user roles and video customization options allow for lots of freedom for an organization but the steep upfront cost can be overwhelming for small budgets and organizations.

Wistia is excellent for connecting your sales and marketing teams with video. It helps us to get a lot more out of the videos that we spend a significant amount of money producing; we can see who watches them, which parts of the videos are popular, and use that data to improve the videos. That's hugely important to us. If you're just looking for a place to host videos, a platform like Vimeo with lower pricing and less-fancy features would be a better fit.

I think Wistia is well suited for most organizations which have to have a reliable place to host their videos. I think the biggest issues come in with scale since I don't think that the interface is that well suited for a company that will have a large number of videos over time.

Wistia is a terrific platform if you are simply storing video content and embedding these videos on to your own website. You may also set privacy measures and invite people to view specific projects in Wistia, allowing for your content to be shared through links and accounts, without compromising other videos within your account that you do not want the individuals to have access to.

I have enjoyed leveraging Wistia for multiple audiences, they provide great analytics, and insights into the value your video is bringing. Where did any viewing drop-off occur? You can then course correct to improve the video, in fact, you can drive A/B testing in this manner. Always enjoy leveraging the content, within multiple professional environments and occasional personal use!

Honestly, I can't think of a solution where Wistia is not well-suited unless you're wanting something like YouTube that has potential to 'go viral'. Wistia is the perfect tool for making better business decisions based on data. Before, it was so hard to determine if a video was actually successful.
